Anti Aging Botox Treatment
Anti Aging Botox Treatment is commonly used in
Clinics and Beauty Salons across the globe.
Botox is actually the brand name. The full name for
Botox is Botulinum toxin type A and is actually – would
you believe – a neurotoxin produced by the bacterium
How Does Anti Aging Botox Treatment Work?
Botox toxin is very potent and works by paralysing
muscles which it comes into contact with. And that’s
why Botox is able to iron out all those aging lines and
wrinkles - it stops (or at least severely restricts)
muscle contractions under the area of skin causing the
lines and wrinkles to appear.
Anti Aging Botox Treatment causes the facial muscles
where administered to become paralysed. So, limited or
no muscle movement means that the skin supported by the
paralysed muscle stops being creased by constant
expression contractions. Inhibited muscle contractions
means that lines and wrinkles stop forming.
The muscle paralysis caused by Anti Aging Botox
Treatment is reversible: the effects of a single Botox
application may last for between 3 to 6 months. After
this time, the muscles start contracting again and the
lines and wrinkles start to re-appear.
Using Botox injections for wrinkles is non invasive and
the procedure is usually carried out in approximately
20-30 minutes. The practitioner injects a small amount
of Botox into the site to be treated. As the Botox
starts working, it blocks the nerve signals to the
muscles under the skin. The muscle therefore relaxes
and the skin is smoothed, causing facial lines to
The Botox Injection Treatment may leave the skin a bit
red and sore, but this is usually very minor and will
reduce after a few days. A Patient can usually leave
the clinic straight away and return to work the same
day. The Botox Injection Treatment usually starts to
work within 3 days, but it may take up to a week to
maximize the full effect.
How Much does Anti Aging Botox Treatment Cost?
Botox is normally charged by Units. So a user, by
determining how many units are needed for a treatment,
can approximate the cost.
The cost of treatment depends on:
i)The area(s) to be injected
ii)The number of units used
iii)The number of treatments a user will have
As a rough guide:
Treatment of the frown lines require about 12 – 20 units
Treatment of the horizontal forehead lines require
about 15 – 25 units
Treatment of both crow’s feet require about 10 – 15 units.
Always ask your Practitioner prior to treatment what is
their cost. That way, you won’t have any nasty
surprises after your treatment!
The Downside of Botox
Very few serious risks have been reported with using
Botox as a cosmetic treatment, but you can always ask
your Practitioner prior to treatment of any associated
complications, if any.
One obvious consideration is that a Botox user will
need to keep having top ups every 3 to 6 months if they
want to keep their facial lines and wrinkles at bay. So
cost consideration may become an important factor.
Consider also that Botox may result in reducing facial
expressions. Sure, you want to get rid of lines and
wrinkles, but you still want your face to have
expression and character – because after all, that is
what makes your face unique and beautiful.
